fashion x art (ysl 1999)
Fashion x art. I really like these pictures from Yves Saint Laurent's s/s 1999 campaign, starring Kate Moss. The shoot, as you may see, is inspired by famous and classical paintings such as Mona Lisa and Manet's Olympia. I really love the combination of classical art and fashion. What I enjoy the most though, apart from the gloomy, dark and sensual mood in the photos, is the switching of gender roles. Notice how Kate Moss and two naked men sit in a forest in one of the pictures, whereas they are meant to portray the opposite; two fully dressed men and a naked woman. Seems like Kate Moss is indeed the boss.
